There are two Appia commercials entered for the Sliding Pillar Rally, so if you want to see what the finished thing should look like you know where to be!!

thought i'd get this project underway, i bought a pair of alloy front wings from the appia consortium a few months ago, will how had them made but never used them, they are the wrong shape for the pickup as the wings are very different to a standard s1/2 car however they will make a damn good start to replacement wings and far easier than starting from scratch, i've dropped them off with bill lewis who is hoping to have them ready for a 1st fitting in a month or so   Grin

a little more progress, since dropping the wings off with bill he made up aflared arch and fitted it to the alloy wings, i collected them and tried to fit them, what a disaster!!!, what he'd done was 100% correct however the wings where completely the wrong shape and size to fit. the distance between the top and bottom of the wing was over an inch too short and wher the wing meets the grill area was over an inch ot too, so back to the drawring board and start again as there is just too much wrong with the shape of the alloy wings to sort easily and as bill said it would be easier for him to start affresh  Undecided , anyway a week later i got a call to pick up 1 of the steel wings that he'd repaired to try, now look back at the previous photo's 1st and look at the state of the o/s wing and see the job he's done on it !! absolutly AMAZING  Shocked , fits well and the door fits to it correctly etc

alloy wings will be left in the shed incase i ever need to use them, its honestly more work to make them fit though than repair the old ones  Undecided

 "Chipping away" Very droll!  What's Barney's (Walby's) side like, I trust he's able to assist Cheesy
Wing's looking good.

Watching with interest - the structural and creative challenges so far seem less than the tailgate, etc. on the other "pickup thing". though the photos of this one are fairly localised - is this thing still called "Alan"?

OK I just looked back at the Santa delivery pics. Its effing gruesome .... and I wouldn't be surprised if Warby's absence is due to him having fallen into a hole in the "other side" (not shown in the latest pics) never to be seen again

yes its still called "alan" in honour of the great finder lol, warby has been on holiday so havent seen much of him the last couple of wks , however..................................................HE'S BACK!!  Grin  servicing his appia this weekend so you never no maybe a little more "where's warby"  Roll Eyes pickup is fairly straight forward and the more i look at it the less worried i am, really pleased with the job bill has done on the wings so far, my aim is to just keep accumilating parts and repairing bits as i restore the other projects then hopefully when i get around to doing it everything will be there like a huge airfix kit  Cheesy

well i've had my 2nd floor built in my unit so i've got space back to put the appia shell back in my own unit!, anyway i've bolted the front wing on and latched the door on for a trial fit, i then rolled the shell over on its side onto its trolly to make a jig to hold it whilst its blasted and welded, work will hopefully commence soon on the jig
